Kid's/Youth Handgun 101 Shooting Class

kids4--live-fire-rev2 sml.jpg



TIME: 9:00 AM TO 1:00 PM

Our "real-range-time 5-hour class is taught by NRA-Certified Advanced Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors.  The experience of all the exhileration and fun of noise, power, recoil, and outdoor targets that your young shooter will love, and with full professional supervision by advanced law enforcement and NRA firearms instructors!  

Shooting exercises will be overseen and monitored by a Certified Chief Range Safety Officer.  This gives children the perfect opportunity to learn to shoot in an outdoor venue with professional instructors where safety is paramount.  This class is great for the beginning shooter or the child that already has a firm foundation of basic handgun safety principles in theory and action taught at home.

The Stoneridge range is in rural Eagle Point.

This course is identical to any outdoor range course for adults with the exception of the special care required for younger shooters.  This course is great for students that have a higher-tolerance level to noise and regular lethal live fire.  By the end of the class, your child will be empowered, shoot safer, and more accurately, while maintaining handgun safety as they learn to handle, manipulate, load, unload, and fire their handgun.  We also rent handguns for this class at a cost of $25.

Parents of students are required to bring a handgun for their children to use during the course unless they are renting a firearm from us.  Parents are required to supply their young shooter with 50 rounds of ammunition for their firearm or 9 mm target ammunition if renting a gun.  Please make sure all firearms and magazines you bring are completely unloaded prior to entering the building.  Do not fill magazines in order to make it easier for the shooter.  All live ammo should remain in the box it came in.

"Shooting Certificates of Course Completion" will be awarded to all attendees.  "Parent-Certificates" not available in this course.  The certificate awarded in this class satisfies ORS 166.291 for Oregon concealed carry license when they turn 21, if they choose to apply.  These certificates NEVER expire.

A certificate that satisfies Oregon Revised Statute 166.291(1)(f)(c) for Oregon CHL will be given to each child.  Parents can hold the certificate until the child is able to apply for their own concealed handgun license.  These certificates NEVER expire.
